    Aaq,
    Again, I agree with you about the process and lying on FISA.

    The FBI admitted that they did things that were improper.

    My point is that to conclude that the whole investigation was politically motivated with zero basis and not acknowledging that there were very serious reasons to investigate because of Trump’s campaign members behavior is wrong in my mind.

    Russia helping Trump get elected is not a hoax and the FBI was warranted to suspect that Trump’s campaign was involved in getting their help. Michael Flynn was a member of the campaign and he was not an innocent figure.

    Ncb,

    Since my post answering you somehow was not posted, I will summarize.

    The argument you make is called a straw man fallacy.

    It refutes words that I never said and that I certainly agree with.

    I have no idea what boot licking you are referring to.

    AAQ,

    You are making a good point that there might be good questions in the report and of course I did not read a single page of the 300 page report. But the whole report does not make any sense to me or to any other lay person.

    Does the FBI have a computer program or lawbook that needs to input exact factors and information before it will legally allow them to start an investigation? That is ridiculous.

    Or does the FBI have a computer program or lawbook that you needs exact factors and information before it will legally allow them to warn social media of a possible Russian influence on our election? That is ridiculous.

    The FBI should be able to start investigations and warn social media based on many factors that lead them to believe that an investigation is worthwhile.
    These factors might simply be based on the past history of known evil countries and their leaders. Or members of a campaign who are working for foreign governments and want to become rich after working in the military for 25 years.

    So I don’t care really care about every single factor why the FBI started it’s investigation.
    If Trump’s campaign was doing nothing illegal , then they had nothing to worry about.

    I guess the news about America’s disgraceful former Mayor isn’t so important so I will say it.

    He has been sued for $10,000,000 for abuse and many other things he is liable for.

    The lady suing him has many recordings and emails which show that he was working with Trump to sell pardons for 2 million dollars.
    She has records of the plan to steel the election if Trump lost way before January 6th.
    He also makes many antisemitic remarks.
    This is the person Trump was listening to fraudulently commit seditious treason.

    If you’re looking for a job in Florida, you might want to consider some red-hot new career opportunities picking vegetables, tarring roofs or cleaning hotel toilets.

    Thanks to the imperatives of campaign messaging, Florida is about to make life harder for the hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants working in the state.

    We’re going to be spending millions of tax dollars to fly them to other states or to scare them away by implementing a law that fines some of their employers $1,000 per day for giving them jobs.

    You might think that chasing undocumented residents from the farm fields, construction sites and janitorial closets where they’ve been working is an exercise in political bottom-feeding.

    But it’s best to think of it as great news for those of you who have felt stung by being unfairly left out of those pre-dawn bus rides to the crops, summer afternoons on the construction site and late nights in filthy office bathrooms. You have an opportunity now to reclaim these “stolen” jobs.

    Just imagine how much hatred for Biden the Republican’s have that Republican James Comer, the chair of the Oversight Committee from 2023, who held a Press conference a week ago to announce a SHOCKING whistleblower report on the Biden family, announced yesterday to Maria Bartiromo that he DOES NOT HAVE A WHISTELBLOWER .
    HE LIED AT A PRESS CONFERENCE !!!!!

    Comer was surrounded by all the other lying Republicans at the press conference to announce the SHOCKING WHISTLEBLOWER, but does not have the decency to have another Press conference to retract his lies.

    Comer has nothing on President Biden.

    Whereas, Trump is up to his eyeballs in criminal activity.
    Mar-A-Lago was raided because he is felon.
    He was liable $5,000,000 for defaming a person he abused and he continues to defame her even after he lost.
    Congress was attacked and a person lost her life on Jan 6th due to his encouragement. But Trump calls the person a patriot and the Security guard a thug. That it the leader of the Law and Order party. Just another silly republican slogan which is a lie.
    He is not a decent human being to even beg forgiveness from the people in jail because of him.

    As the chair of the Oversight Committee from 2023, Comer has declined or stopped investigations into former President Donald Trump, instead starting investigations into President Joe Biden and his family.

    Congressman George Santos Charged with Fraud, Money Laundering, Theft of Public Funds, and False Statements

    Santos Allegedly Embezzled Contributions from Supporters, Fraudulently Obtained Unemployment Benefits, and Lied in Disclosures to the House of Representatives
    A 13-count indictment was unsealed today in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York charging George Anthony Devolder Santos, better known as “George Santos,” a United States Congressman representing the Third District of New York, with seven counts of wire fraud, three counts of money laundering, one count of theft of public funds, and two counts of making materially false statements to the House of Representatives.

    The indictment was returned yesterday under seal by a federal grand jury sitting in Central Islip, New York. Santos was arrested this morning and will be arraigned this afternoon before U.S. Magistrate Judge Arlene R. Lindsay at the federal courthouse in Central Islip, New York.

    Gadol Hadofi,

    Regarding Biden , I don’t understand where you are coming from. The right wing media enjoys laughing at Biden’s expense and there is even a whole section of the right wing media dedicated to catching Biden in slips and taking videos completely out of context, but it is all a lie.
    They know it is a lie. They know that he is functioning with complete competence 24 hours a day as President.

    It is the fox news and other right wing media rule of “We do not report the truth. We report what our viewers want to hear.”

    You did the exact same thing with Harris’s 20 minute speech and about 2525 words. You took one paragraph out of context and tried to make believe it doesn’t build confidence.
    The quote is gold. It is wordy, but so what. She was making a speech.
    Listen to her whole speech.
    You can disagree with it. As frum Jews we definitely have issues with it, since it was remarks by Vice President Harris at a Political Event on Reproductive Rights.

    By the way, I can destroy Trump’s way of speaking every time he opens his mouth at a rally.
    Bottom line, not a reason to be afraid of her as a President.

    What do you find incorrect about my post?
    Regarding ujm,
    Hillary ran for Senator from NY and was immediately the party nominee. She knew she was going to be nominated from the start and was drafted by the Democrats.

    Only after being the first lady for 8 years where she was active in many parts of the administration including healthcare overhaul, Senator for NY for 8 years, Secretary of State for 4 years, did she run for President.

    Only the republicans will nominate a non-politically experienced person for president and expect that it will turn out good.

    mdd1,

    The following statement is 100% pure undiluted Russian Propaganda.
    “Putin is trying to re-attach parts of Ukraine to Russia — both of which had been a part of the original Russian state.”

    Finland, Sweden and the rest of NATO are 100% correct to not believe a word of it.

    Putin does not have permission to “re-attach” anything just because he “believes” it was historically his.

    I admit a millions deaths is a guzmah – so far. I should have written “displaced and destroyed the lives of”. But since the war is still ongoing and Putin appears to be ready to draft as many people as he needs, it might not be so wrong in the end.

    In terms of current events, Finland has been very public in why they wanted to join NATO now.

    No stunts. No pressure.

    In late August 2022 Finland’s foreign policy leadership gathered in Helsinki for the Annual Heads of Mission meeting to discuss current security and foreign affairs.
    Contrary to the idea that Helsinki was afraid of Russian military action against Finland, the decision to apply for NATO membership in May was based above all on proactive risk management. The always present potential of Russia’s threat had to be viewed from a different perspective after February. Finland’s previous restraints – national defense, the international rules-based order and close defense cooperation with NATO – were deemed insufficient under the circumstances.
    Hence, the conclusion was that only NATO’s article five and its nuclear deterrence could provide Finland with sufficient security.

    Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against Rep. Jim Jordan and others for what the prosecutor says is a brazen and unconstitutional attack by members of Congress on the prosecution and investigation of former president Donald Trump.

    Lawyers for Bragg’s office and private law firm Gibson Dunn filed the 50-page civil complaint in U.S. District Court in Manhattan seeking to interrupt an investigation launched by Jordan, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. Jordan and his committee are trying to obtain confidential investigative materials compiled during the district attorney’s criminal probe.

    Among other things, Bragg is asking a federal judge to invalidate a subpoena from Jordan’s committee to former prosecutor Mark Pomerantz, who split with Bragg’s office early last year following a dispute over how the case should proceed. Pomerantz’s subpoena demands he appear for testimony on April 20.

    On 8/9/22, President Joe Biden signed NATO accession protocols for Finland and Sweden, moving the defense alliance closer to adding two wealthy, militarily advanced members amid Russia’s ongoing assault on Ukraine.

    Biden’s approval followed overwhelming support from both chambers of Congress earlier this summer, with the Senate ratifying the agreement last week. Efforts to welcome the two Nordic countries to the treaty have received bipartisan support, with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell last week calling their admission a “slam dunk” for national security.

    “I’ve been across our state since Friday, surveying damage, meeting with survivors, and discussing recovery efforts with local leaders, emergency personnel, and volunteers. It’s clear that the cost to clean up the damage those storms created will be substantial,” said Governor Sanders. “The federal government is currently covering 75 percent of all costs incurred during our recovery process, but that arrangement must go further to help Arkansans in need. Today, I’m asking the federal government to cover 100 percent of all our recovery expenses during the first 30 days after the storm.”

    The tornados and severe storms caused extensive damage and an intense financial burden for the affected communities.

    “So basically a useless law to have a useless form was knocked out.”

    So basically there was a great law on the books for a century to protect children and the current Governor, for no good reason except inconvenience, reversed it and is not worried about the adverse repercussions to the youth it was meant to protect.
    Mazel Tov.

    I understand what worries the Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families and all the opponents to the bill and I agree with them. As a result of her new law, employers can take advantage of 14 and 15 years old and get away with it.

    “So basically he’s saying that it will make a prosecutors job slightly easier if you have this form. ”

    Laws are made with the goal that they be enforced and not have violator’s feign ignorance. Nobody trusts people to keep the law when there is a monetary advantage to break it.

    Read the following republican hypocrisy from the Arkansas Advocate.

    Eliminating this requirement would “restore decision-making to parents concerning their children,” the bill states. Rep. Rebecca Burkes (R-Lowell), the bill’s primary sponsor, repeated this on the House floor Feb. 22.

    Rep. Andrew Collins (D-Little Rock) took issue with this clause.

    “Parents have to sign off [on the permit] under the current law,” he said. “If this passes, the parents won’t have to sign off, and I think that’s a pretty important distinction.”

    Anonymous posters who don’t live in Israel and don’t have to deal with the current situation, need to realize that their vote on this matter is not on the same level as Israelis. The poll results are thus inconsequential until you divide the Israeli’s and non-Israeli’s.

    Frost ripped Republicans as “cowards” who “wasted our time” passing a Parental Bill of Rights and who didn’t give “a damn about the rights of children to go to their classroom without the fear of being gunned down due to senseless gun violence.”

    Besalel,

    They tried their hardest to lock Hillary up. She was under investigation until 2019 when her investigation for her email server ended. The investigation found “no persuasive evidence of systemic, deliberate mishandling of classified information.” If they had found something , she would have been locked up.
    Before that she was under investigation for Ben Ghazi. She testified for 11 hours to the committee. Trump has not testified publicly for a single minute.

    Democrats only want him to be convicted of crimes that he committed. Most of them he has loudly admitted to and publicly dared the justice system to get him.
    His running for office was not a crime but a few things he did during the campaign and after winning might have been.

    A lot of people are sitting in jail because of him and one is dead . He has not expressed any regret or requested forgiveness for ruining their lives. Michael Cohen was one of his closest lawyers who he then proceeded to destroy when Michael no longer wanted to commit perjury for him.

    That people feel sorry for him that he might sit in jail is astonishing. He never expressed that feeling for hundreds and maybe thousands of people going to jail because of him.

    Tish James is doing what she was elected to do – investigate Trump. Similar to what Trump promised to do with Hillary.
